Alastair McKimm is a stylist and creative director who has worked with brands such as Saint Laurent , Calvin Klein , Jil Sander , Alexander Wang and Versace. McKimm creates campaigns and styles shows — his ability to craft clean and precise looks gained him the respect of the industry.
Born in Belfast, McKimm studied fashion design at Nottingham Art School and moved to London after graduation. McKimm eventually found his way into the i-D family as assistant to then-fashion director Edward Enninful . Since then, McKimm has established himself as a freelance stylist and consultant, working with both streetwear and luxury brands on campaigns and shows. He is known for his bold and modern aesthetic and ability to blend modern luxury with youth culture and streetwear.
In 2013, i-D magazine named McKimm its first New York fashion director. He also contributes to Vogue Italia, Interview and Self Service .
McKimm said his process depends on the client. For shows, “some designers think in terms of line-ups, others think in terms of garments, and you have to come in and help them put it all together.”
